The fitness class for the teachers went well. I had a great time, and they had fun, too. They want the class to run, so I will be teaching there on Tues and Thurs afternoons.
A few weeks ago, my sister, Shelby, started attending the Silver Sneakers classes that I teach at our YMCA. When she first started the classes, she had to use a walker. After a couple of weeks, she graduated to a cane. Today, she walked several feet on her own without a walker or a cane. The other participants were so happy for her. One lady (who has a beautiful voice) came over to her and sang a few lines of the Joe Cocker song, "You are so Beautiful." That was a very touching experience.
Shelby really wants to walk on her own again, and I think she is determined to do that, now that she has so many friends 'rooting' for her in the Silver Sneakers classes. Seeing her walk unassisted, really made my day.
I'd better get busy logging in the rest of my Spark People things, so I am out of here. Have a GREAT THURSDAY!

Thank you for your comments on my blogs. You are all very much appreciated. Nice day with cooler temperatures, although I thought I saw that it would be very hot as the week went by. I guess enough of the week hasn't 'gone by' yet.
I have enjoyed having a week or so of FREE time on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings, but I am pretty sure all of that will soon change. I am doing a Demo class this afternoon at a school for the teachers. They say they want a class, so I am available. I have another contact in the making for a class not far from where I live, IF they are wanting an evening class. This one is still in the early planning stages. I do hope it will work out though.
Other than that, I have nothing going on other than my usual 'stuff.' Hope you are all doing well. Have a GREAT TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I am doing OK, no complaints. No rain this week, and the weather has been a little less humid. Seems like the races will go on this weekend as scheduled. Actually, tonight and next Thursday night, they are having special races. I was asked to work, BUT I knew that I couldn't do my long Friday's work if I worked at the race track tonight. I had to turn down the offer. I get up at 5:30 AM, and I have a full day and evening of classes on Friday. I knew that would be very hard if I worked tonight and didn't get home until midnight or later. Once a week is about all that I can work at the race track due to the long, busy working hours, and the long drive over and back.
I am out of here for now because I need to get started on some of the things around the house that I've let go today. I don't have my own Tues and Thurs night classes now, but I substituted for two instructors tonight, and I also subbed on Tues night for an instructor, so for now I am staying busy. I do have something in the planning stages for me to do classes on Tues and Thurs nights, but it isn't finalized yet. I should take advantage of this free time that I have (unless I am subbing for someone).
HUGS and have a GREAT EVENING and a WONDERFUL FRIDAY!

I have just enough time before the cut off to wish everyone a TERRIFIC TUESDAY! I am going to get my hair done tomorrow, and I have a late afternoon sub position for another instructor, so tomorrow will be busy.

Thank you for your comments on my previous blog about the ELVIS impersonator. He is doing a show Saturday night in this area, and IF it rains, I can go. Several of my family members and friends will be going. I don't know how many of those from my class will be attending, but I've heard them talking about going. Of course, if it doesn't rain, I won't get to go. It is out of my hands, but rain IS predicted for today, tomorrow AND Saturday. So, if we get all of that, the races will be canceled.
I hope you are all having a GREAT DAY! I only have two classes now on Tuesday and Thursday because some of my smaller classes have been canceled. That means that I have my afternoons and evenings FREE on those days. I will be looking for other locations, but for now, and since this is my first week with ANY free time in ages, I am still free this week.
Have a GREAT EVENING!
